What's your word for December?by Holly Lanesmith
Earlier this week, I made a post on Facebook, challenging you to take a look at the rest of the month of December and to think of a word to describe how you want the rest of your year to look.
I got the idea because I was thinking about a few different things…
One of them is that many people choose a word in January for the entirety of their year.
But then it got me thinking... What happens when life doesn’t go the way we plan?
What do we do when unexpected twists and turns come our way? Do we change our word for the year? Or do we just give up? (I’ll be sharing my insight on that in just a moment. For now, keep reading)...
I’m not saying it’s bad to set a word for the entire year, but it can be challenging and daunting when things don’t go as expected - no matter how much effort you put into creating a theme around that word.
And the truth is, life is messy. Things happen. And there will be times when we are discouraged and when things don’t seem to be going as planned.
But let me get back to sharing why I wanted to challenge you with this exercise of choosing a word for the month of December, specifically.
...It’s because it’s quite similar to an exercise that I challenge my clients within my Double Your Income achievement course.
Instead of simply asking what they want their entire year to look like, we take it a step further and get a bit more specific.
Now, I can’t share all the details about what I make them do, but let me just say that the exercise I give them works. It has worked in my life, and it’s worked in a number of my clients’ lives.
So if you aren’t in the Double Your Income course yet, why don’t you at least pick a word for the rest of the month?
And then, join me this Saturday on Facebook Live as I share an excerpt from Double Your Income - more specifically, an excerpt from a lesson on "What Do You Do When You’re Discouraged."
Because, as I said earlier, life gets messy and we will face seasons of discouragement - even when we’re on a quest to do something great.
So join me this Saturday. I believe you’ll take something very valuable with you from this lesson.
I’ll see you at 9:30 am (ET) on Facebook, right here.
For now, get brainstorming on that word!
